The Stars at Night....

....Deep in the heart of Texas....
[did I mention we have a little state pride down here?]

I have made several of these quilts now and have done different style blocks on each one. Nine patch, rail fence, whatever. Each section is 4x8 and each block is 6.5 inches (including seam allowance) so it makes a nice size lap quilt.

The star is appliqued on leaving a 0.5 inch border which I then clip fringe style so it 'rags' nicely when washed.

Everything's bigger in Texas! ~

Yea for Texas quilts! I can't think of anything I would do for a Michigan quilt...put a car on it??? Ooops...it's probably not the best timing for that.

I can't see the picture well enough to determine how you did the blocks in the red and white sections. Are they on the diagonal?

Great job Susan!

I just did a red block with the corners done in the stripe on a diagonal [if that makes sense]. When the blocks are put together, it forms the diamonds in the center.
